Volunteers … The Key to Success … Everyone Wins!
The Peterborough Garden Show has an incredible 400 volunteer base that put forth an effort that adds to the success of this Show! Ontario Festivals Visited has attended the Show on several occasions and we can attest to the visible positive effort the Volunteers contribute. You experience this from the warm welcome at the front door, to assistance throughout the Show, to walking you out to your vehicle with your purchases.
The Show draws on the Peterborough Community Garden Network, which is made up of about 38 groups. Check it out at .
The Peterborough Horticultural Society and the Peterborough and Northumberland Master Gardeners are “not-for-profit” organizations of passionate volunteers who host the garden show to raise money so they can gladly give it back to their community for: scholarships, awards and bursaries to students studying horticultural related post-secondary studies, supporting Master Gardeners in Training along with grants to community gardens.
“For the Love of Gardening” … a bit of history...
The first Peterborough Garden Show with 70 display booths was in 2001 and was presented as a one-time event to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the Peterborough Horticultural Society. The response was so enthusiastic that two years later, along with the Peterborough Master Gardeners, they did it again.
2015 marks the Peterborough Garden Show’s 15th year with 8 well-known speakers over two and a half incredible days. The Show hosts 150 vendors and exhibitors who are landscapers, gardeners, growers, teachers and designers along with many not-for-profit organizations; they have garden displays and demonstrations; an ambitious interactive children’s garden; the latest in garden tools, a fashion show and so much more..
